Board members new 2013 Board members Brandon Kurisu and Jason Fujita joined current members Rachel del Rosario and James Wong for a tour of English Language Learners program and Drop-In Center, the Kuhio Park Family Library, and enjoyed a special visit from the Bookmobile for the keiki at Kuhio Park. As Board member Jason Fujita said, “Seeing the programs really helps you understand what the needs are and why we volunteer on the Board.” “The kids have so many needs and are eager for everything the Library had to offer– books, knowledge, attention. It just made me want to do more to help.” added Brandon Kurisu.
